Marcelo Bielsa is not feeling any pressure at Leeds and “doesn’t care” about his side’s position in the Premier League.
That’s according to former West Ham hitman Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider as the Whites failed to win again this weekend.
Leeds nicked a draw against Wolves on Saturday thanks to a last-gasp Rodrigo penalty.
The Whites dominated the ball but without key players such as Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford on the pitch, Bielsa’s side lacked a cutting edge.
To make matters worse, Raphinha went off injured but the player confirmed later in the day that he is “fine” in an Instagram post (Via Adam Pope).
Leeds have only won one game in the league this season but McAvennie claims Bielsa is not feeling any pressure.
“I don’t think Bielsa feels pressure, he doesn’t care as long as he’s still kicking,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.
“He’s got one hand tied behind his back this season with the number of injuries Leeds have had.
“You could argue the squad was never going to keep these fitness levels up over another season and they should have recruited in the summer.
“But there isn’t a bottomless pit of money to sign loads of squad players.
“Also, we know Leeds have a good crop of young players so they can help with any depth problems.
“I love Leeds and I love listening to Elland Road whenever they are on TV.
“There is no doubt in my mind that once Leeds have everyone back, they will be fine.
“They are a match for anyone in the league when they are at their best.”
